Keep away kids from cords & drawstrings!

Clothing needs to be designed with safety in mind if escalators and playgrounds are not to become a death trap for children. The DIN EN 14682 standard "Safety of children's clothing - Cords and drawstrings on children's clothing" contains recommendations how garments for kids aged up to 14 years should be designed.

It is frightening how many recall campaigns are listed on the information page of the European Union for products presenting a risk of strangulation or serious injury. In the past fatalities and major injuries have unfortunately occurred time and time again due to the use of unsuitable closures on children's clothing. A fact that is barely recognised in the public debate surrounding the safety of textiles. Instead, the focus falls here on possible contamination with harmful substances. Christiane Schulze from the Hohenstein Institute in Bönnigheim is pressing for even greater caution in the interest of children. Christiane Schulze's team of staff are also making a contribution here, working on behalf of manufacturers and trading companies: They examine clothing designed for children and adolescents in relation to the DIN EN 14682 safety norm before manufacturing starts.
